What the fuck is wrong with people? Why is it so easy for people to fell prey to the us vs them dichotomy?
We are ALL human beings, having a truly extraordinary experience in this place and time together. Why is it that people who are intrinsically the same; at the very least the same species can be so damn cruel to each other?
As human beings with a lifeline to Divinity and these miraculous hearts and souls housed within bodies that are such magnificent machines of marvel, we are capable of so much more than vile and unnecessary hatred.
Let me clarify something in really easy terms.
Statues and flags are objects. They do not stand for anything more than whatever you give them credit for. They are NOT anyone’s heritage. Because heritage can not be taken away. Just as if you destroy a statue of Jesus it does not destroy the religion. That’s just plain idiocy.
Relocate them. Put them in a museum. Let the people that want a say have a fucking say.
If these images hurt a group of people, if to them they symbolize hatred and oppression why wouldn’t we want to get rid of them?
People are of more value than idiotic symbols. And a president that values these images as more important than people is a president I now very strongly oppose.
And those corporations and leaders that are paying a lot of lip service to something without actually doing much are just as bad, like closing their ad campaigns which is just a way for them to save a lot of money and look like they actually care.
I’m so sick of the lip service of everyone. When is the last time you, any of you, actually went and helped a fellow human being out? Took the time to listen to someone and help them? Especially someone in the marginalized category, someone you’re not related to and doesn’t look or act like you?
This country is acting like my surly teenager. Who I asked why are you always grumpy with me? And her response was “you almost never have anything nice to say”. And I said “well…the only time you ever talk to me nicely is when you want something, so this goes both ways”.
I didn’t mention that she walks out of this house half naked most days, that she defies her curfew and has started using ommission to get away with what could be construed as lies. Because that would be adding fuel to the fire and these are the things I have already discussed with her which she is tallying up against me.
But she is being selfish and only seeing things from her point of view. When we are a family. We need to cohabitate in order for both our lives to be optimal. Which is why I wanted to address the issue head on. This is my own battle right now.
But when will people come to their fucking senses and realize we are better, stronger AND HAPPIER together? Working in symbiosis, each group and sector has something of value to add to the world and together we could accomplish true miracles.
I really don’t know what people expect. But at the rate this is going I think I may need to find somewhere else in the world to hang my hat. Somewhere I will be accepted for the color of my skin. Somewhere that will be a completely irrelevant thing. At this point in time I struggle to think where that can be.
And all because people value what they think they are losing over the pain and suffering of fellow human beings. It’s impossible to try to segregate the world. As we have seen from this pandemic we are too interconnected. Even if we tried people would defy it. So what would be the use to even try.
I just can’t wrap my head around the stupidity of people that have hearts and brains and souls and refuse to use them to consider others. Refuse to do anything more than placate themselves for being in the right and dig their head further in the sand. That don’t actually do anything worthy of anything for anyone but themselves and “theirs”.
I’m sick of people buying into the frenzy of hatred and defending it with something as stupid as “heritage”. Jeezus fucking Christ. This is a Christian country?
I used to not like the song “Wake me up when it’s all over”, because it sounded defeatist and depressing to me. One has to live their life to its fullest; all parts, good and bad. But I think I finally understand the sentiment.
I don’t know where this is going. But if people don’t start to push back on the narrative that is being shoved down their throats and start opening their hearts and actually doing things to bridge the gaps between us I can’t imagine it getting better.
And it’s sad because we have the capacity to make this world truly fucking extraordinary and yet we let ourselves get swept away in the gutter with all the other idiots. Some of them at least have an agenda, a reason for the destruction they seek. Most everyone else is just a fucking sheeple following along on a tethered leash. And that goes for all sides unfortunately.
And I’m done for the day.
